Paxton Lynch fires away as Broncos rookie minicamp begins


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --As cameras rolled and shutters clicked, Paxton Lynch took his first practice repetitions as a Denver Bronco on Friday morning as the Broncos began their rookie minicamp.

During the individual period that began practice, Quarterbacks Coach/Passing Game Coordinator Greg Knapp emphasized under-center work for the first-round draft pick. Lynch took snaps, dropped back and fired to an array of receivers on hand for the work. He also threw passes to fullback Andy Janovich, running routes out of the backfield.

"Obviously, it's a whole new offense; it's an NFL offense," Lynch said. "So there's going to be struggles with everybody. But I knew what was going on; I just don't think I was picking it up as fast as I should have, obviously. But that will come in time.

"I just love the fact that I'm getting every rep I possibly can get right now. So I'm taking advantage of that."

Under-center work will be a critical component of Lynch's development after he spent his years at the University of Memphis working out of the shotgun in the Tigers' spread offense.
